Wow i like your art
expecially the style of your early art
this was released to the public, so now i can post it...
the sculpt is by J. Jung at Gentle Giant (he's an excellent sculptor, by the way, and i don't know who painted it, but the paint department here is pretty awesome as well), and the designs were by me. this was my first or second minibust assignment, so it took a bit of getting used to. i think these 4 were drawn and painted in about a day and a half or so after thumbnailing a bunch.
i've done a bunch more since then--mostly marvel and star wars stuff, and i've changed my workflow and materials too. besides the minibusts, there have been a lot of miscellaneous assignments for all kinds of other clients. can't post that stuff though.
... and a friend just sent me this...
i don't know what the fuck those guys in my squadron were thinking, but if you look at the mouth of the snake... it looks like they had vagoo on their mind.
haha love the snake tongue man also really like your work ive learned alot from your thread keep posting stuff man
watercolor tonight from nathan fowkes' class. medium sized moleskine notebook.
Really nice! I can totally tell it's Mark, well done!
Chris, is the structure of the painting class similar to the head drawing with Nathan? You took the head drawing class as well, where he basically focuses on the reilly construction, then the light, the shadow, the full range and then he finishes with composition.
Does he skip these to jump into monochromatic painting or does he also talk about construction and things like that? How about technique? In the drawing class, Nathan emphasizes principles instead of technique, maybe it's different in the painting class
last zbrush class this morning. goofing around with something related to what i was doing at work.
great updates Chris!! are you a pilot? my friend just entered the air force. what type of crafts were you working on there?
been working all night. gotta go.
Nice stuff. And congrats on an excellent mini-bust.
That water color still blows my mind! It looks like acrylic paint! :D Sweet stuff here! Keep it up!
Been busy keeping the traditional craft alive I see! :D
anyway... you get the idea.
these were all done for a biotech company's annual report. the marketing firm wanted them done in a certain style because these drawings would be superimposed on a background so that it looked like they were drawn in a lab notebook.
it was a lot of work, but i learned a lot. these are just about maybe half the drawings.
so a big thank you to Mr. C at the 405 Group. he found me here on CA.org, so that should let you guys know that all kinds of freelance jobs are floating around out there. do good work and put it up on the forums!
okay... now i have to get back to work for another client
Holy God your inks are good. Please my lord, infuse me with your powers!
did about 2 hours of revisions for my client and then watercolor/gouache homework from tonight. i'm fucking exhausted.
cool to see these different approaches, great lighting
Your 3d work amazing me!They are so beautiful!
wow these new portraits have amazing style
pls post some more of this crazy ink stuff
Outstanding stuff man. Hardcore skills.
Great updates Chris! hope Freelance is treating you good ! (or at least busy)
this is very nice! a friend of mine tell me about fowkes and linked me at ur work..
i got my white acrilyc with my watercolor set an it was so cool!
it's 10pm and i'm still at work on a friday night doing this watercolor study after sargent. trying to figure out nathan's technique for this stuff. when it switches to color my technique might change, but for now i think i'm treating it like charcoal on toned paper--try not to mix the black and white together or it will turn so cold that it will overpower the value study. i have a couple of messed up examples where i screwed that up. it's tricky. but if you try this with black or brown watercolor and white gouache and you want to keep them semi-transparent--do not mix them together without a good reason.
celb--Thanks! Nathan's a great teacher and he deserves a ton of exposure for his work.
VictorB--Thanks man. Super busy. some good projects coming up, i hope.
bebbo--i'll try. too busy to resize them all tonight.
Teundeboer Thanks Teun!
OmenSpirits--thanks! yeah, i'm trying to keep it going on all fronts.
nickybeats--i was just a civilian engineer for the USAF and then for Boeing Directed Energy Systems. I worked on the Airborne Laser Program (you can wikipedia "YAL-1A") to find it.
tony00--hey tony, the class is mostly the same as nathan's oil painting class. at least, the syllabus is mostly the same. he has a strong aversion to teaching technique. i understand why, and if my patience and perseverance works out, i guess i can manage. there are some peculiar difficulties to switching to watercolor all of a sudden. although nathan says he thinks of it the same way he uses oil or acrylic, that's not 100% accurate.
man, I could stare at your faces forever. They're just so deep, and the eyes pull you right in.
It's a successful study in that I immediately saw Sargent's personality in your piece... and I'm not familiar with the original. Immediately the thought was "Sargent"... so you captured something elusive there.
haven't done this for a bunch of months now. went life drawing with the gray sketchbook. just so you know, canson is selling the 9x12's again. but they're kind of expensive...like 30 bucks each. i ordered another 5. gonna have a lot of drawing to do.
nightfur--thanks, nice of you to say that.
p_sage--thanks! i'm still getting used to the watercolor, but i'll get it one of these days. you can almost tell sargent's work just from the composition and massing of darks.
